The Bloor St. East location is on the ground floor of the Unilever office building at the northeast corner of Bloor and Church Street. All of our classrooms are bright, colourful, and filled with natural light from our large windows. Our playground has a large awning that allows our children to play outside all year round, rain or shine. We are also just a short walk away from a great nature trail where our infants enjoy scenic stroller walks.
Our location has 7 classrooms that can accommodate 85 children from 2 months to 12 years old. We offer Infant, Toddler, Preschool, Kindergarten and School Age programs with the option of full-time, part-time, or backup care. We also offer flex care at this location to accommodate our families that have irregular schedules. Flex care allows you to pick the number of days you’d like your child to attend per week, and even lets you split the time between locations – a convenient option for those that work both in the office and at home.
We are one block away from the Yonge and Sherbourne subway stops for our parents who commute by TTC, and we have drop-off/pick-up parking spaces reserved for those travelling by car. Inside the centre you’ll find hanging racks for coats as well as stroller parking.
Caregivers will have access to our password-protected webcams to keep up to date on their child’s day anytime they are in the classroom. We also have cameras that monitor our entryway and use a biometric keypad for enhanced security.
Bloor St. East is accredited by the Ontario Camps Association. Click here to find out more.
Emergent Curriculum Philosophy
What makes Kids & Company special is our holistic and child-centred approach to care. We use an Emergent curriculum philosophy, which means no two days look the same. Educators identify the interests children gravitate towards and formulate unique learning opportunities around them to help develop age-appropriate skills. Over time, you’ll watch your child develop independence, confidence, and a positive sense of self and the world around them. Click here to learn more.
We provide our children with a hot lunch and 3 snacks each days, catered by our Kidco Kitchen. Ingredients are carefully planned and purchased locally, containing no additives or preservatives. We take allergies and food restrictions very seriously and provide clear instructions to our kitchen in order to meet your child’s needs. Learn more here.

Meet the Director
My name is Nataliia Nakonechna, and I am the Centre Director at the Kids & Company Bloor location. I graduated from George Brown College in 2018 where I received my diploma in Early Childhood Education. I have been working with Kids & Company since November 2018 and have almost 10 years of child care experience. Working in the field of child care always gives me a new perspective. At Kids & Company, I work with a diverse group of families, have continuous professional development, and have an opportunity to grow in the child care field. The Bloor site feels like a family, the staff are friendly and professional, with years of experience and profound knowledge.
At Kids & Company, we work with your family to ensure that the transition is a smooth one. Before your child’s first day, we’ll provide information on what to expect. We’ll create an integration schedule that is right for your child and every day that your child is in the classroom, you’ll receive a daily report that lets you know how your child’s day was. You’ll also be able to see him or her on our in classroom web cameras. The Centre Director will even send you an email before the end of the day if your child has a special “wow” moment that day.
Toddlers learn best in the context of relationships within small groups. There are fewer distractions and children’s activities are more focused. In Kids & Company toddler classrooms, our small groups allow very young children to make connections, form caring relationships, and learn to understand other children.
All two-year-olds examine everything they see, hear, feel and observe in an attempt to make sense of the world around them. In our preschool programs, Kids & Company teachers interact, observe and interpret the interests of preschool students to encourage further discoveries by planning activities and investigations that expand your child’s learning.
Kids & Company runs comprehensive kindergarten programs designed for children who are 4 or 5 years old (junior and senior kindergarten age) to prepare them for Grade 1. Using emergent curriculum techniques to adapt to the children’s’ interests and skills, we set a foundation of early literacy, numeracy, artistry, and the construction of relationships and ideas. Kindergarten programs are integrated into full-time child care to provide convenience and continuity.
Select Kids & Company locations offer school age programming for children ages 6-12 (Grades 1 – 6). Whether you have a younger child attending a Kids & Company location and you’d like the convenience of picking up your children in the same location or you’d like a program that’s run by trusted educators, Kids & Company school age programs may be right for your child.
